Craig Leon - Anthology Of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 2: The Canon [RVNG Intl. Promo]

Released on May 10th, 2k19 via RVNG Intl. is Craig Leon's "Anthology Of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 2: The Canon", the most recent sequel of his early 80s works "Nommos" and "Visiting" which both were heavily inspired by the art, music, legends and mythology of the Dogon people based in Mali / Africa. Once again teaming up with production partner Cassell Webb Craig Leon creates a new cycle of seven mystical tunes spread out over 41 minutes playtime on this longplayer, ranging from classic, beautiful Ambient realms to naturalistic Future Tribal, thundering tension and cinematic string sequences slightly touching on being a little bit too sugary, sweet and esoteric in "Four Floods Of  The Point" and the way moodier "The Twenty Second Step As Well As The Tenth" before exploring ritual drones accompanied by Tribal drums and finally landing on a spatial, brooding vibe over the course of the album that's maybe a little too cliche but still might resonate with die-hard fans of the Ambient / ChillOut genre.
